This free public panel was part of Blackwood Gallery's Circuit 2: Care Work programming and it explored family photography through the themes of care work and visual kinship. The presentation began with a brief talk on The Family Camera Network and The Family Camera exhibition. This was followed by a panel that explored questions such as: What preservation and “care work” is involved in FamCam activities? How do contemporary artists engage with family photographs? What are the affective dimensions involved in working with family photographs? 

Panelists: Jennifer Orpana (moderator), Sarah Parsons, Sajdeep Soomal, and Celio Barreto
